    Exclamation Pit Bull Shot Three Times [including once in the head]; Still Charges Officers

    http://www.action3news.com ^
    Posted on July 26, 2010 334 PM EDT by Chet 99

    Omaha, NE - Officers trying to find a suspect in a sexual assault were thwarted for a while by a stubborn pit bull.

    Police officers executing a no-knock search warrant near 33rd and Forest Lawn Avenue noticed a garage door partially open. As police approached, the suspect reportedly opened the door suddenly and a pit bull ran out, charging an officer. Police reports say he attacked "in a vicious manner, growling, showing teeth." The officer shot the dog in the head, causing him to stagger and collapse.

    As officers arrested the suspect and tried to enter the house, the pit bull "raised up" and charged the police again. A second officer fired two shots, hitting the dog in his upper back and right rib area. The dog "fell slightly" but then charged the officers a third time.

    The suspect--Aaron Sheperd--is in jail on a $5 million bond for sexually assaulting and viciously beating a young woman last week.

    Gosh, I'd think that the DA would add aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer too after the pit bull attack. Glad no one was hurt.

    Yet another lesson that illustrates that a determined attacker may not drop immediately after being shot. Poor dog.

    pit bulls are known for taking multiple shots and continuing their attacks...i believe there have been cases where head shots havent stopped them...including large caliber handguns for those who are gonna play the .45 will do it game....they are a tenacious aggressor....

    Anytime a punk releases a dog of any kind on an officer he should be charged with at least aggravated assault or assault with a deadly weapon.

    Having seen what two pits can do when someone crosses their turf, I have no sympathy for any owner that treats their dogs like they are weapons.

    Having been in a shoot with a pit bull,I am of the school that says if you do that, its an automatic thrashing within an inch of your life complete with time in jail.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Heavy charges of buckshot hammer pit bulls. They also don't stand up to high powered rifles or the dual rear wheels of a 1964 International 78 passenger school bus. That one did bounce those of us in the back of the bus out of our seats though.

    Kind of makes one who carries a .380 with no spare magazines as a primary and only weapon stop and scratch their heads a little bit. Or, maybe not.

    I don't know what the point is of the thread..... so, some officers shot a dog that attacked them ?

    I don't blame the dog, for the owner's lack of keeping the dog in control and that they may have possibly trained it to attack, as any dog could be regardless of breed. But, the LEO may have had no choice but to shoot it either. So, I see no point. Officer shoots guy that tries to shoot him ....... OK, and would you expect anything different than that ?

    A good example of how tough it can be to bring down some animals, none of whom have gotten the Hollywood memo about the need to curl up and expire the moment gunfire is heard.

    A lesson for us all ... Never say "die." Never give up. It ain't over 'til it's over.

    Durability of such dogs, for one. That one's choice of minimalist weaponry might well not be sufficient, if attacked by such a dog. That a person should not consider a firearm as a talisman that'll nix the threat like magic ... that sometimes it can be tougher than that, to stop a threat.

    Management of a fearful situation, for another. An eye-opener for folks who missed this week's "Cops."

    While I agree we dont need viscious attack dogs running wild in the street, I dont beleive we can be angry at the dog. I am sure this dog thought it was protecting its master and had no knowledge of its owner being a scumbag. It will always be the owners fault for the actions of their animal whether a pitbull, poodle or rabbit. Perhaps we should charge animal owners with additional crimes if they use their animal as a weapon, but to blame the dog is wrong. Would we feel it was a killer attack dog if it was a golden retreiver that was unleashed on the officers?

    The dog is a result of it's upbringing, and training. I have the utmost sympathy for that dog. To fault the dog is ignorance. Is the bull who gores a bullfighter at fault? Trot right up here and try to stick pins in me, and watch what happens.

    This situation also should remind folks to shoot until the attack stops, whether the attacker is man or beast.
